Jindal Global University said, “JGU is at the forefront of academic innovation, internationalisation, and research excellence with a view to providing a transformative education for our students. This has enabled us to overcome the challenges posed by COVID-19 to the world of higher education. As an ‘Institution of Eminence’ dedicated to the study of social sciences, liberal arts and humanities, it is important for us to make a strong and substantive impact on the economy, polity and society. The Jindal Institute of Behavioural Sciences (JIBS) that was established in 2014 has created a rich body of research and capacity building in behavioural sciences. We are building on that experience to develop a world class institution, the Jindal School of Psychology & Counselling (JSPC). Similarly, our faculty members at the Jindal Global Business School, Jindal School of Liberal Arts & Humanities, Jindal School of Journalism & Communication and the Jindal School of Banking & Finance have a deep and rich experience in areas of Fine Arts, Entrepreneurship, Data Journalism, Business Analytics, Financial Markets and Business Studies. We aim to leverage these experiences to provide a unique educational opportunity to our students in a range of UG and PG programmes that are being offered in the new academic year 2021-22.”
